Tribute to JFK

Post by Who Am I » Sun Aug 12, 2012 11:43 am

I present here a quote by John F. Kennedy from 1963. There is nothing I could personally add to make this tribute more fitting than his own words.
What kind of peace do I mean? What kind of peace do we seek? Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war. Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, the kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life for their children - not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women - not merely peace in our time but peace for all time."

-- President John F. Kennedy at American University 10 June 1963
